Dear Friends,

“I keep my friends as misers do their treasurers, because of all the things granted to us by wisdom, none is greater than friendship.”

It has been over a year since we have gathered together. During this dark time, life has changed in many ways. We have missed visits with family. We have missed playing cards, going to lunch and dinner with friends. Sadly, we have lost family and friends. I was very blessed in life to have parents who taught us to find the light through darkness. Their life lesson was, “Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient and the best things come to those who don’t give up!”

The Seaford Historical Society has not given up! In spite of the dark times, we have been able to keep our employees with the help of grant monies, we have been able to do necessary repairs thanks to the help of talented volunteers; and with the help of young men of the Mormon faith, the granary was painted and yard work was done at Ross Mansion and the Seaford Museum. We have also reopened the Museum and Mansion with limited hours, and are now booking events at Ross Station following the COVID-19 protocols.

However, old properties are in constant need of attention; windows at Ross Mansion and the Seaford Museum are in need of repair, both sites require interior upgrades, and we still need to pay our monthly bills. It is through the generosity of our members and supporters that the light can shine on a bright future for the Seaford Historical Society.

            “We live in the present,

                         We dream of the future,

                                         But we learn eternal truths from the past.”


Teresa Wilson, President
